Celebrate the miracle of Idaho’s working forests!
Get a free seedling
The last Friday in April each year marks Arbor Day — a special holiday to celebrate renewable, sustainable TREES. To celebrate Arbor Day, the Idaho Forest Products Commission is giving away over 20,000 one-year-old blue spruce seedlings at locations throughout the state.
Get your free seedling at any Home Depot store in Idaho, Spokane, Washington or Ontario, Oregon on Friday, April 26 or at the Arbor Day Festival at the John A. Finch Arboretum in Spokane on April 27.
Seedlings can also be found on Arbor Day at North Idaho Community Library Network, the Coeur d’Alene Library, and at Paul Bunyan Restaurants and Numerical Credit Union branches in Coeur d’Alene, Hayden and Post Falls, Whole Foods in Boise and Boise Co-Op stores, and at the Idaho State Arbor Day Celebration at the Capitol on April 26th.
You may also contact the UI Pitkin Nursery to order seedlings (fees may apply):
Another seedling source is USFS Lucky Peak Nursery outside of Boise. Call 208-343-1977.
